Are you sick of festivals yet?
Nicky Wire: "I've never liked them. I don't understand the idea behind them, or why people want to come. It's not something. I would do - but we don't want a world full of me. I'm a complete miserable sod."
What's the point then?
"It's a day out, isn't it? People haven't really come to see you. The thing is, I like people to be attentive when we're playing. [Apropos of very little] At least Pat Smear's looking amazing."
What's it like playing underneath Alanis Morissette?
To be honest, at something like this we just do a professional job. It's come to the point where you just let the songs try and convert a few people and realise that you can't try and get people to hate you if you want them to buy your records."
There are boss vibes here, though. Cheer up!
"I'm just pissed off because it's the first British Open Golf I've missed since I was five. I usually watch every single hole, and I've got to drive to Belgium tonight, so I'm completely depressed about it."
